I've been playing guitar for about a year and the best I had ever used were Boomers, and the only others I had used were Fender and Gibson Brite wires. I just bought these the other day and they changed my guitars sound completly. Before I had Boomers and they sounded ok, but i wanted something better that had a crisper sound and these were it. With distortion they have alot of crunch and on clean they sound really glassy, and they bend very easily. Bottom line, these are THE BEST!

I had these put on my electric not to long ago and they really don't suit my tastes well, at first they caused a lot of buzz, they were new so it was expected but after continued use the buzzing persisted so I raised my bridge,it got a little better. They don't stay on tune for to long on mine, and I have brand new tuning machines on it, their not the best, but their ok, power slinkys are better suited to my taste.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

    I use it on my Gibson Les Paul Studio. It's incredibly smooth and enjoyable to play. It stays in tune and it is amazing since I am using it on a Les Paul, that is known by having some "staying in tune issues".

            I've tried D'Addario strings and others before, but they just wore out within a few months. These, however, continue to impress me with their quality. I don't plan on switching string brands in the future.

                I always buy these. They're the best price/quality combo. The only time I regretted these strings were when they cracked the nut on my ESP LTD semi-hollow. But that's more my fault than the strings.

                  I use these strings on both my Epiphone Les Paul Special II Limited Edition and my Global acoustic guitar. Great tone, they have lasted quite a while without losing quality or breaking. My go-to strings for now, until I start exploring a wider rande of string types.

                  Best Strings Out There!!

                  from California USA

                  Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

                  I have been playing guitar for over 15 years. I have been through probably every brand of strings that are out there. These strings seem to be the very best strings I have ever tuned up to use. This paticular set works so great with Floating Bridges and tremolo bridges. Also works great with fixed bridges and basicly all guitars. I highly recmnd them to any player looking for a perfect set of strings.
